Little Blossom

Hi crafty friends,

Thank you for dropping by, how are you all doing? Having some nice sunny weather like we are in the UK or guess for some of you could be your colder time of the year.

I've got another beautiful new release from Conie Fong. Little Blossom.

There are actually 3 images in the collection, this one with the flowers in the background, one holding balloons and one holding nothing but the little bag. You can buy them separately or altogether. I'm using Little Blossom with a background of a beautiful tree with blossoms reminded me of an oriental tree.

You can find them all here at the store: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/525197472/sale-digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp?ref=shop_home_active_5 together and they're on sale at the moment

Tori the Dragon - Birthday Girl

Hello crafty peeps,
Today I'm sharing a little bit of inspiration for my DT inspiration project over at Conie Fong using another of Conie's cute dragons Tori. I think I may be getting a dragon obsession.

Did you know some dragons have wings, others don’t. Some dragons with wings can fly, others can’t. Some dragons without wings can fly. How odd!

You can find her and so many more  over in Conie's store

Painter/Decorator

Hi crafty buddies,

I'm sharing some inspiration today for the challenge over at the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge. Come and join us, Anything Goes https://polkadoodle.blogspot.co.uk/

So as the DT are doing Sunshine Yellows I chose the female painter/decorator from the Work and Play Collection 11.
I quite like a bit of decorating especially hanging wallpaper and painting on big walls, not so keen on the gloss work on the doors and skirting as have a habit of getting it on the carpet and then I'm told off!!

You can find the whole collection here http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/work-play-11-download-digital-crafting-collection/
and the image on its own here http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/female-painter-decorator-decorating-digital-stamp-download/

Spring Flowers

Hello crafty buddies, today I'm sharing a little bit of inspiration for the Challenge over at Conie Fong's Facebook page.
This month our theme is Summer Colours.

Would love to see your entries there to win some of Conie's great images
https://www.facebook.com/groups/396730687168777/?fref=ts

I hope you're having a bit of summer where you are. I've got a few summer factoids for you, you know I like to tell you stuff!!


  • The iron in the Eifel Tower expands in the summer making it grow by more than 6 inches.
  • Summer is the by far the busiest time at movie theaters in the USA and Hollywood always hopes to earn a significant portion of total annual ticket sales through summer blockbuster months. To date, the top 10 most famous summer blockbusters of all time are 1) Jaws, 2) Star Wars, 3) Jurassic Park, 4) The Dark Knight, 5) Raiders of the Lost Ark, 6) E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, 7) Forrest Gump, 8) Ghostbusters, 9) Animal House, and 10) Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • The month of June was named after either Juniores, the lower branch of the roman Senate, or Juno, the wife of Jupiter.
